Kanye West is making moves in the Big Apple.

Today, the Jesus Is King rapper sat on a panel at the Fast Company Innovation Festival alongside Mark Wilson to speak at the "Kanye West and Steven Smith in Conversation with Mark Wilson" event in NYC.

During the discussion, Ye doubled down on his 2024 presidential run while talking about his sneak line and bringing jobs back to the United States. However, the audience thought it was funny. Inc.com staff writer Kevin J. Ryan was live tweeting from the event and here’s what went down:

“When I run for president in 2024...” Audience laughs.

Kanye: “What are you laughing at?” Audience goes silent, Kanye stares for an uncomfortably long period of time.

 

 

 

Lord. Y'all know he wasn't feeling that ish.

The Yeezy/Kardashian machine was hard at work to promote Ye’s newest album, Jesus Is King. The Chi-town rapper reportedly rented out the Burberry store off 5th Avenue to host his “Follow God” music video premiere. The private screening of the new visuals brought out several of his celeb friends, including A$AP Rocky, Tyler the Creator, DJ Clue, Italian fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, and his wife Kim Kardashian West.

So check it, the Wests photogs sent a message to the paparazzi agencies that has us raising our eyebrows. The message was posted in bold, red print that reads: Absolutely No Negative Captions Or Stories.

Since when do they dictate what's being written? Interesting.

 

 

 

"Follow God" is directed by Jake Schreier and it was shot at his newly-purchased ranch in Wyoming. The video featured his reported $14 million Wyoming property, which is 4,500 acres, complete with donkeys and alpacas. His father Ray West even makes a cameo in the video.

Check out a preview below:
